We joined another couple who had already booked a day of chocolate tours and the Punta Gorda market. We persuaded Lyra to add the spice farm tour. Enjoyed the Excacao meal and hands on demonstration very much. Would also recommend the spice farm tour, which gave us a new appreciation for how these spices are grown and processed. The open market (belive it was Punta Gorda) was interesting, but only open on Sat. mornings. We saw many new fruits and veggies, which Lyra was familiar with and told us about. She was a very good guide and gave us a lot of good information. Had a great time. The food and drinks were amazing.
